Summary

How far would you go to protect your friends?

Will, Carl, Aiden and Darren are inseparable from the day they meet at school. The combination of Will’s street smarts, Carl’s brains, Aiden’s loyalty and Darren’s fearlessness mean they are a force to be reckoned with, and together they feel ready to take on the world.

But solidarity can’t insure against tragedy, and when life tests the boys to their limits, slowly the four choose different paths as they take the step into adulthood.

Darren has always been the one to take chances, with a dangerous side that's a blessing and a curse. As the years pass by, Darren’s schemes and mistakes start to weigh heavily on his friends. One fateful day, Will finally has to decide if friendship and loyalty are worth risking everything for.

Life doesn’t always give you a second chance to make the right choice....

This book was previously published as Lazy Blood.

Disappointing

David Thorpe the only thing good here. Kept waiting for a clever twist but ended without one.

Love Ross Greenwood, but

Good story, but I agree with another review… the ending is disappointing. Not what I would expect from the author. I still recommend the book.

You're got to be kidding!!

Ross Greenwood is one of my very favorite authors. He makes me laugh out loud and cringe at the same time. I love all his books. His insights into human nature are uncanny. The only thing that kept this from being a 5-star review was the blunt ending. I hated it.
